I would like to see if they are cooler. If yes you get 3 of them remove the cooler put some 120 over and a nice little folding rig in a HTPC case laying somewhere. Taking no place.

Any Idea on power consumption/PSU requirements? Think a decent 300w (2x 12v rails @16A ea.) mATX psu will cut it for this thing?
